Ben Adam - Yardena Arazi

Yardena Arazi was born in 1951 and started a career in music during her teens. She became part of the female vocal trio Chocolat, Menta, Mastik in the Seventies. They represented Israel during the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest. Arazi returned to Eurovision when she co-hosted the show when it was organised in Jerusalem in 1979. And in 1988 she was selected to represent Israel, this time as a solo artist.

Her song was 'Ben Adam', a song about being righteous. Arazi sings that 'no man is perfect in all virtues' and tells her listeners 'don't always judge him for the worse'. Beginning at a slow tempo, the song builds to a fast-paced conclusion. Arazi finished seventh in a field of 21 competitors.
